Insurance Commissioner Hosts Town Hall Tonight

A crowded house is expected this evening at the Foothills Event Center in Grass Valley for a town hall meeting on fire insurance. State Insurance Commissioner Ricardo Lara will be in town, and taking questions from the public and addressing concerns about people either getting their policies canceled due to high fire danger, or not being able to get coverage at all. Nevada County Supervisors Dan Miller and Ed Scofield will also be part of the forum. Miller says things are getting so bad that even if you have the proper defensible space around your home, you could still get dropped by your insurance company…

All questions need to be submitted in writing before the meeting begins. Miller says this meeting is Lara’s idea, and he is not the one responsible for the policy cancellations‚Ķ
